  2. It’s better to keep your past and present loves separate.
  3. Normally, I’d believe that the saying ‘There’s no small parts, only small actors’ is a load of crock because, more often than not, actors relegated to the small-part category stay in ‘Who was that guy from that thing’ purgatory — however, ’90s sitcom ‘Friends’ proved that the saying is true.
